Hi Butterfly Your mum is very smart, we are what we think and do. Survivor 10 years on is very encouraging. Kevin You have a new baby coming - you have to be there to make this baby and your other kids into brilliant people - no-one else can do that except for their dad - that has got to be the best motivation to fight the C word. Chow 4 Now Chris
Hey Chris,Yer a new baby on the way, Donna is now at 22weeks we had our scan on Thursday (which is very late) and I did not want to know the sex but i saw....that should give you a clue???The new diet I'm on seems to be working which is good.Have a nice week end.Kevin
Hi All, Kevin you sound much more positive today which is great, congratulations on bubs, that first scan is always pretty exciting. How are you finding the chemo? I agree with Chris about staying positive for your kids try and keep your mind on the end result, which is you being well. I know its easier said than done! people often say things to me like. just dont think about it, go for a walk or something, I just smile and say,Oh thanks what a great idea Chris my mum has had a few false alarms over the past 10 years but she just keeps on top of things, I think now that she has reached the 10 year mark she only needs to have mamagrams every 2years now which she is very happy about. She did have surgery, radiotherapy and was taking tamoxifan, which I think they were just trialing back then. I think she took the tamoxifan for 5 years. Did you say you had kids Chris? Are they coping okay with the news. I have to say enjoy the special treatment while it lasts, soon they will be back to their normal cheeky selves, (mine were anyway).. Is anyone having treatments at RNS in Sydney? & hello Annie, Im sorry to hear about your husband. I am not a carer but I can understand it would be extremely difficult. I think it is important to try and look after yourself as much as possible, sleep when you can and lots of fresh air is always good. I am suffering a bit of lymphoedema today in my left ankle which is a bit annoying. I had all of my pelvic L-nodes removed I think about 50 in total so the swelling in my legs is just a side effect from that I think. a bit annoying though. Healing thoughts are going everyones way. butterfly
